Involvement of the cervical lymph nodes is the most important prognostic factor for patients with oral/oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), and the decision of whether to electively treat patients with clinically negative necks remains a controversial topic. Sentinel node biopsy (SNB) provides a minimally invasive method for determining the disease(More)
We studied 19 cases of chondroid tumors of the larynx: two chondrometaplastic nodules, two chondromas and 15 chondrosarcomas (including two dedifferentiated chondrosarcomas). One of chondromas recurred 18 months after resection because of inadequate surgical treatment. Chondrosarcomas were separated as low-grade (nine cases), intermediate (three cases),(More)
Background: Forty-nine cases of circumferential pharyngolaryngectomy with total esophagectomy (PLTE) done between 1982 and 1996 were studied retrospectively. These procedures were performed for advanced squamous cell tumors of the superior esophageal sphincter (n=23), for hypopharyngeal tumors with synchronous esophageal carcinoma (n=15), and for(More)

The Sentinel Node concept is now well established for HNSCC and gives us a strong basis to treat patients with N0 neck where the rate of occult node metastasis is high. At the present time, the most accurate method for staging N0 neck is pathologic examination of the neck content. In this way, sentinel node dissection (SND) and sentinel node biopsy (SNB)(More)
